Don't Trust Poets

Once when I was very young and new to the land of love
I met this man who wrote such words that sent me to his arms
I was not aware of his snake like charms

Within two weeks he was wooing another with words that sent
her in a tizzy and soon he was her lover

One week later bored with his game, he went off for different
prey -- So ladies, when they write such words that melt like butter
Remember the mighty pen can send your heart aflutter.

Do not swoon til you know their tune and how they are really
made. Love sick women who have met their inky poison can
join in on this crusade.

Words are beautiful and spread out thin by many an unfaithful
lover - It must be nice to write such words and watch a young
girl fall into their wordy web, hearts a pitter patter
But beware my dears, it may not be he - Just his mighty pen
- a deadly ink poisoned flatterer

------

This is not a fairy tale or anything at all, Just a warning
to women who fall for a poet - when he is through you will
painfully know it.

Oh, and lady poets, I have seen you spin your poison web -
taking young impressionable youths and leading them with
false exotic words of love -- so this is not just about
men that carry the mighty poisoned pen.  Women can write
like black hearted widows -----and send a man away
in heart broken pain.

And, no, not all poets write with lies - hiding behind a
wolf's disquise -- just beware my dears -- and get to know
your talented poet before subcumbing to their charms
This is just a little bell - or maybe a loud alarm

NetSwan~

Such a titillating tale.
Sent to scare off the wary prey.
Seems that such is a covert distraction
to draw my attention away.

Oh, I'll not fall for such prattle.
Nor give up the stake to my claim.
Ah, in the heart of a poet,
is just where I want to remain.

I'll read the ink of many,
gladly my heart to give.
For in the heart of a poet
is just where I want to live.

So quill me !
Thrill me !
Splash me with your ink !
Oh, my fateful poet
It's better than you think !

*Thanks for the fun !
~*Marge*~

netswan; Good Advice, indeed. A thought came to me as I read your lovely poem, what if...
the love bug bites one of the folks of whom you spoke, they meet and it is the worst case of "yulks, yipes, what have I done!"; only to return to find your still in love with his/her words! Guess one could always say, I'll be your, only if your write everything down and your back facing me at all times. (chuckle)

I dunno', just had that thought to flash as I read your poem. Not in love with them, in love with their words. Oh me, got to get off here, Silly tonight I guess.

Really enjoyed the read.   marcy

Netswan, Not all poet pens have poison ink, but many do get carried away
(Marge, you are TOO MUCH! You make me laugh)

I enjoyed this poem

Happily married I may be,
But love to read the pen so free,
From men amongst these quiet rooms,
Doth make this poet's heart gently swoon!

Now, if I could get my hubby to pick up the pen now and again, I'd be in heaven!  LOL

Best wishes,
/Kit

damn so I might as well become a hermit if everyone who speaks beautiful poetry lies.

True it is often the words kept silent that are the most important.

Now I am going to paranoid if any women seduces me with poetry, hell I be every surprised if any woman attempts to seduce me LOL.

great poem netswan.

Well Netswan what'll happen if both of 'em happen to be poetry geeks. Poetry I feel is a true expression of emotion and if someone misuses it they're to be banned from writing.

Nicely done, Netswan. Even though you didn't mention him by name, I think it is admirable the way you have taken on the responsibility to warn others about LongJohn and his evil ways. You have done a service to the site.

Gosh you guys, if I were to know I was going
to get this many responses to a poem.
I think I would have taken the time to make
it a bit more poetic.   hehehe

Balladeer ---You made me laugh out loud  
amazon_lover --- two poetry geeks were
                 by fate to meet
                 (somebody finish this lyric)
James  LOL
Ellie - am so glad you are safe --)
corozon  thanks - I am sure you could have
         written one way better -)
marina - thanks to you, too
Rich -- that is sheer poetry to my ears
Brian -- where are these foolish girls that
         can't see a wonderful guy like you?

Thanks everyone
